FDA(LOCAL) - ADMISSIONS: INTERDISTRICT TRANSFERS
Note: This local policy has been revised in accordance with the District's innovation plan.
The District shall be exempt from state law and may revoke the one regular school year transfer agreement if the student is assigned a disciplinary consequence, is placed in a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP), or is expelled. In addition, a student may be immediately revoked of his or her transfer status for the one regular school year if he or she has not been in attendance for 90 percent of the days the class is offered.
The Superintendent is authorized to accept or reject any transfer requests, provided that such action is without regard to race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, or ancestral language.
A resident student who becomes a nonresident during the course of a semester shall be permitted to continue in attendance for the remainder of the semester.
A nonresident student wishing to transfer into the District shall file an application for transfer each school year with the Superintendent or designee. Transfers shall be granted for one regular school year at a time.
In approving transfers, the Superintendent or designee shall consider availability of space and instructional staff and the student's disciplinary history and attendance records.
A transfer student shall be notified in the written transfer agreement that he or she must follow all rules and regulations of the District. Violation of the terms of the agreement may result in a transfer request not being approved the following year.
If the District charges tuition, the amount shall be set by the Board, within statutory limits.
The Board may waive tuition for a student based on financial hardship upon written application by the student, parent, or guardian. [See FP]
The District may initiate withdrawal of students whose tuition payments are delinquent.
Any appeals shall be made in accordance with FNG(LOCAL) and GF(LOCAL), as appropriate.
